They do have uses......my wife has one next to her PC at work & it does heep her cool......there is neither the space or spare plugs for a mains fan & they would be too powerful with paperwork on the desk.......

These are cheaper at Morrisons though.....so cold.....sorry

Yes probably fine for work where its not you that will have to buy a new computer , but dont use one on your own computer.

These (in black) are two for £7 in Morrisons.

Im curious, what actually happened when you plugged it in?
(I have visions of your laptop getting sucked in to the fan and chopped it bits):D

Just how powerfull are they, all the one's i've had in the past are pretty weak and produce barely a breeze. I can see how the ones that produce a mist with water could be potential threat!

Sadly nothing so dramatic , just stopped working - tried to get it mended (thought it might be an internal fuse ) . Uneconomical to repair - you can see why I'm anti novelty USB plug ins , loved that Laptop -especially the Windows XP

I see... probably a feedback short though the USB – the wiring in them does tends to be pretty tragic.

No problems plugging them into a USB charger or powered hub. I wouldn't recommend plugging them into a laptop or PC either, you can't be sure the computer will provide enough power and it could easily overload a 500mA rated port.

I have used dozens of USB powered devices like this without any problems.....in fact the only USB device that has ever caused any issues was an externally powered external HDD which caused a power surge when it failed......

I have never heard of anyone else having issues like yours & would suggest that you were simply unlucky

All connected devices have to be approved by the IT dept before connection........dozens of staff use them & none have had any issues with their use

You wouldnt be laughing if it was your £400 Laptop that was wrecked - would you ? I certainly didnt laugh . I presume you have sufficient intelligence to realise that flash drives and external hard drives use negligible power ,whereas a fan !! Laugh away and feel free to connect lots of novelty items to your Laptop

No I wouldn't be laughing if I blew up a £400 PC but I'm also intelligent enough to know that this little fan didn't break your laptop because it is "a mechanical device" or "it draws too much power", if it did cause your laptop to fail (unlikely) its because of cheap wiring and construction/build quality in this thing. You could say the same for any dodgy unbranded device.

Is this the same model/brand as the one that killed your machine?


Not a dig, I just wish people could convey their message accurately

It was a Belkin cooling tray -a reliable and trustworthy brand I thought . If you cant trust one of theirs how can you ever trust any such device , cooling tray, mug warmer, fan ,dancing gnome etc from an unknown Chinese manufacturer .

I'm gonna imagine just opening a window would be safer ...if you can indeed do that.....and stand well back.....;)

I wouldn't use one of these if your a gamer. It will make ur PC that little bit hotter.
